I hung some fly paper in my kitchen during a mini-invasion of fruit flies. I’ve never used fly paper before. It’s fun to come home and check if more flies have been caught. The first time I did, those feelings of suspense, satisfaction, and hope were a little too familiar. I self-analyzed for a moment, and realized they were Web 2.0 feelings, the same combination I get when I check profile views and blog stats.
However, when I see other fruit flies still flying around in other parts of the kitchen (somewhat defiantly I might add), I also feel some worry. It sure looks like the fly paper culls only the weak and the stupid.
